What is FIRST??

The mission of FIRST is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership
- FIRST website

FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), founded in 1989, accomplished its mission through events and competitions. The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) that our team participates in is the highest echelon of FIRST events which combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Teams of high school students design, fabricate, and program robots for competition. There are currently more than 3,000 active FRC teams around the globe.


Our team members come from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. We are dedicated to giving back our diverse community and the world at large, inspiring and preparing students for careers in STEM through outreach events, workshops, and long-term parnerships.
